Black-Eyed Pea Salad II

 Made  times

"My husband loves peas and beans, but I do not like the southern way of cooking them. I came up with this recipe so we could both enjoy black-eyed peas. This salad is so rich and sweet with flavor, and all the ingredients go great together! It is even better the next day!"

  3. In a separate bowl, whisk together olive oil, balsamic vinegar, Dijon mustard, and honey. Drizzle over the salad, and gently toss to coat. Refrigerate 1 hour before serving.

I love beans of any kind, but my family doesn't like them. I am always looking for ways to prepare beans that are simple and quick to prepare and easy to scale down to a serving or two. This f...

I made this exactly as written and it is excellent, letting it marinade in the fridge overnight.

This is SUPER delicious!!! I made this to go with our family New Year's Day brunch, and everyone was raving about it. I did have to make a few substitutions (out of necessity, not by choice), ...
